KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — A year after determining one of the best golfers in the world, The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island will now determine which country club in the United States has the best players.
Organizers announced Tuesday the course that hosted the PGA Championship in 2012 will also host a competition called The Burgess Cup starting Oct. 4, 2013.
The three-day, invitation only event will invite teams of eight players from the top 16 county clubs in the United States. The first two days will feature match play and stroke play, with the tournament culminating in a final head-to-head match.
Rory McIlroy won the PGA Championship on The Ocean Course in August.
